What is Business?
Business means goods or services engaged in for the purpose of meeting the needs of men, which results into making profit.
From scriptures, we understand that the believer is ordained to prosper in anything (legitimate) he does Psa. 1:3. Why are too many believers struggling and barely surviving? What is the wisdom for business breakthrough?
Scriptures make us to understand that the physical is absolutely under the control of the spirit realm Heb. 11:3. In essence, the more one is established in the realm of the spirit, the more the physical will respond to the individual.

Diligence means hard work in right direction. It can also be defined as how much is invested into time. Remember, it is the blessing of God that makes breakthrough in life, but God’s blessing answer only on the work of an individual Pro. 10:22; Psa. 1:3. In essence, when the believer is not working he is not entitled for God’s blessing. The harder we work the more we enjoy God’s blessing, and the more we prosper in business.

Integrity simply means the quality of being truthful and having high moral standards. It also means to be whole; same within and without, in the secret and open. The most influential man in last century (Billy Graham) was asked the 3 most important factors for success in life, his answer was no. 1 Integrity, no. 2 Integrity, and no. 3 Integrity. The reason why many are found sweating in life, yet they keep breaking down is because they need to understand that God looks at what one does in the secret to reward in the open 1Sam. 15:6-7; Matt. 6:6,18. If you want breakthrough in the open, be a man of integrity, which means operate in truth and high morality both in the secret and open. Don’t be a different person when you are in the church, and another in the business place.

God’s ordained His priests as His channel of releasing His blessing on His people life. Also, God has committed Himself to confirm the blessings His servant the priest pronounces Isa. 44:26.

We do this by receiving the priest, obeying him and giving to the priest Matt. 10:41-42.

If you have been struggling in the work of your hand, it is because you lack the understanding of the things necessary. Now that you know, as you give yourself to do them, your days of struggle is over forever from now! Your work shall prosper from today!
